Getting My Butt Kicked

Today was soooo disgusting here in Charleston.  It started raining yesterday and hasn’t really stopped.  I woke up late and lazed around knowing I wasn’t going running outside.  Before bed I thought I would go to yoga if I got up in time, but that didn’t happen.  It was so dark and gross outside and so warm and cozy in my bed.

After getting up, enjoying some coffee, getting some work done and just doing some general lazing around I finally got motivated to move a little bit as long as it didn’t involve leaving the house.  I had heard that vinyasa yoga gets your heart rate up and really gets you moving.  After the class I decided to do on youtube, I would say that is an understatement.

I was sweating bullets from the first five minutes until the end and I know my core is going to be feeling this, the title is no joke:  Connections to Core Power Yoga Class

It ended up being a great rainy day, independent work out but it got me so much more than I expected.

In running news, I add a page to my site about my goal to run a marathon in all 50 states!  I need everyone’s help for recommendations for states I haven’t done and don’t already have a race picked out for…help a girl out please!!

Nailed It!!

There is no greater feeling in the world than walking out of an exam thinking you nailed it, and today my dear friends was how I felt leaving my very first neuro test.  I had been seriously studying for this one for about 3 weeks and kinda let the other two fall to the way side.

The test was at 8:15 and I was done at about 9:30-ish and I was on such a high I went straight for a run.  It barely mattered to me that the harbor looked like this…

…and that it was super windy and started raining on me in my last half mile.  I really could barely care less, I was smiling ear the ear the whole time.

Then I went with a friend to see Silver Linings Playbook (which was so good by the way and not just because I am an Eagles and Jennifer Lawrence fan).  It was a very different romantic comedy/drama than anything I have ever seen before.  I also got ‘creative’ for my movie snack.  I didn’t want to derail after my awesome run so I packed up some fruit and two dark chocolate hershey’s kisses to take with me.

The fruit was all on sale this week so I had loaded up and it made a great snack that I could feel good about!

After the movie, we strolled the mall for a bit and I found these beauties SUPER on sale.

They are mid calf and more casual than anything I have, and fit me like a glove, I knew I had to have them when I tried them on, then saw they were marked down from $90 to $18!!  Talk about my lucky day!!!!

So now I sit with a glass of wine (a favor from the wedding last weekend), reveling in the fact that I don’t have another test for a month and I am not going to do an ounce of work tonight, tomorrow I will have to get back to the grind but until then, this is me.

Happy Friday Everyone!
